Napier Deco, Town and Country Cruise Ship Excursion
, Feb 2020
Ross was a great tour guide. We saw lots of countryside and wineries in a short time. While in Napier we saw a parade of old cars with many people wearing period clothes. Also an airshow! Beautiful city!

We had a wonderful tour of Napier and saw everything there was to see. A delightful quaint town with all the art deco buildings and vintage cars. Our guide was very informative and very accommodating to our elderly mother with her walker. The mini bus was extremely comfortable and provided bottles of water. The end of the tour where we were immersed in the vineyard enjoying our cheese, crackers and a glass of wine was a highlight. Highly recommended!

This guide was also the owner of the tour company. Waste of a day. He first brought us to his neighborhood to show off his old house and his new house that he recently bought. wasted an hour driving to a little church that was basically abandoned. Not interesting at all. literally full of spider webs. Then he brought us to his old place of employment and drove up a side of a rocky mountain. I thought the van was going to tip over. we luckily made it back down alive. Our only positive on this tour was stopping someplace where we were able to purchase an ice cream cone that actually very good.

Hi jimmy, I am disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy your tour. You managed to mention a good number of features of the tour which shows that I fit in a lot over a 4 hour tour. The Esk church is only 15 minutes from town and the diligent volunteers that industriously clean it ever week would be horrified if they they knew that you had found a spiders web in their lovely little church. Most of my guests appreciate the personal touch of taking in the bay view from my terrace but I guess it is not to every ones liking. Thank goodness you really enjoyed the ice cream stop.

We had a wonderful tour around Napier and vineyards surrounding Napier and were taken into the country for a private view from a hill overlooking the beautiful countryside. The views and vines tour was fabulous and I recommend it to others thinking of doing the same.

Ross, our guide was first class and gave a great tour. This even included a picnic of wine and cheese atop a hill overlooking Napier! Napier itself is a hidden gem that has to be seen. The buildings, cars, and most of all the people were great. A really memorable day in the sunshine. Ross thank you for a special day.

The tour was quite enjoyable but the small bus was rather cramped as it was full. When sitting on the back seat it was difficult to view some of the buildings and sights being spoken about. The guide was a friendly person and gave us some interesting facts. The cheese and wine tasting in the winery grounds was lovely.

Our driver was great - and accommodating! Napier is pretty cool art deco and some classic cars touring people around - people in era costumes, etc. and would be cool exploring on a bicycle. Just driving around the city and stopping a few places in the country was nice, but Napier, among the great views and sites of NZ is average. My wife was a bit tired of tours every day and at the end said Napier was nice and no complaints, but if I had a day to go on NO excursions and stay on ship I would have given up the day at Napier.

Napier was a real surprise and a wonderful one. The art deco town and the surrounding countryside were an absolute joy. In particular we loved the Mission and winery. Todd was was a delightful guide, driver, actor and his finishing touch of wine and nibbles under the willow having descended from the view over Napier and its bay, was perfect.
